In my third trimester I heard two horrible words from my doctor…BED REST! I will give more information on that later. I knew that I still had so much to get ready for Benjamin. I was freaking out. Michael works 40 hours a week and there is only so much that he can do to help.
Michael’s Mom and Grandma offered to come up and help around the house. At first I wasn’t sure. I didn’t want to put them out. They told us both that they all just really wanted to help. So I finally said yes.
Thank God for their help. Those two ladies did a ton for us. They washed all of Benjamin’s new baby clothes, the rest of our laundry, dusted, swept, mopped, painted the blue wall in Ben’s room, and a whole bunch of other things. They even bought us new curtains for the living room and Benjamin’s room. There is no way that we would have been able to get everything done without them.
